      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:

      BU (Hero):

      SB:

      MP2:
      $3.32
      MP3:
      $2.09


      Preflop: Hero is BU with 7, 6.
      5 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, SB calls $0.07, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.18) 6, 8, 7 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.09, Hero raises to $0.40, SB raises to $0.91, Hero calls $0.51.

      Turn: ($2) A (2 players)


      River: ($2) 9 (2 players)


      Final Pot: $2.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, sevens and sixes(7 6).
      SB shows a flush, queen high(J Q).

      SB wins with a flush, queen high(J Q).


      Before the Flop, I was trying to steal blinds but SB has called. I hit 2 pairs on a heavy Flop like this. So do we need max protection in this spot? Is there another way to play this hand better or in a correct way?

      Hello anhvusa,

      Preflop: Against those stacks you can easily even consider stealing it for 3xBB.
      Postflop: Not much yo add, we are going broke against their stacks. Nice hand!

      Best Regards.
